Using the Title of “Jr.” Properly

The title of “Jr.” is used when a father and son share the same full name.

This title also indicates the father is living. Upon the passing of the father, the title of “Jr.” should no longer be used to refer to the son.

For example; if the son was referred to as John Phillip Smith Jr., he should be addressed as John Phillip Smith after his father’s death.
